BIG LOVE was created specifically for rap and hip hop producers.
Drake, whose full name is Aubrey Drake Graham, is a multi-talented Canadian artist known for his skills as a rapper, singer, and songwriter. He has had a significant impact on contemporary popular music, particularly in the realm of hip hop, where he is credited with bringing elements of R&B and singing to the genre. Drake first gained recognition for his acting role as Jimmy Brooks in the CTV teen drama series Degrassi: The Next Generation from 2001 to 2008. However, he later transitioned to music and released his debut mixtape, Room for Improvement, in 2006. He followed this up with the mixtapes Comeback Season in 2007 and So Far Gone in 2009, which helped him gain popularity and eventually led to him signing with Young Money Entertainment.
On many lanes in this project, we used high-cut filter automation. The depth of the filters changes throughout the composition. An old tape-effect piano, violin, and brass section play around with a beautiful jazz sequence in the BIG LOVE project.
We used the Halion Sonic SE library in Cubase Pro to try to find all the sounds for this template. We use our free samples created by the Maxi-Beat studio in addition to the fantastic HALion Sonic SE sound library.
All of our Cubase templates were made entirely with the DAW's built-in tools and plugins. This eliminates issues with third-party plug-ins and tools. In our reggaeton templates, we only use audio tracks for vocals and effects. All synthesizer and sampler instruments are recorded on midi tracks and can be edited or replaced with other instruments. This means that you can change any sounds, all synthesizer parameters, chords, melodies, and much more in the project.
The BIG LOVE template makes it simple to learn how to make your own rap beats in this style. Try it yourself! Learning by doing!
